Each year, the V Foundation Wine Celebration hosts a Cancer Research Symposium, where world-class researchers present cutting-edge information to the general public.Led by Chair of the V Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Committee, Dr. Bill Nelson, the symposium offers attendees the opportunity to connect with researchers from every cancer specificity, in a Q & A session that allows attendees to have their questions answered by the experts.
The V Foundation awards competitive grants through a process vetted by a Scientific Advisory Committee. This committee is comprised of the nation’s top doctors and scientists. Many of the researchers who have been awarded grants in years past return to share their valuable findings.
Types of Grants
The V Scholar Grant is a two-year grant of $100,000 per year. It supports young tenure-track faculty early in their cancer research careers by funding projects that are either laboratory-based fundamental research or translational research.
